I love painting days like this and watercolour is the perfect medium. Three colors are all you need, lots of water, an umbrella, if like me you are mad to sit outside and plenty of patience. This is the key technique.
Between each mountain range the colours are left to dry and mist softly forms. The lake is painted simply with a few strokes of paint reflections and ripples added carefully. The secret is less rather than more!
Stones are picked for the foreground and added with dark juicy tones and a few swift ripples added with confidence.
If you fancy painting some Lakeland scenes in watercolour and would like some guidence along the way my online course is just for you. I post to the UK and abroad. Six projects are £55.00
